Director Christopher Nolan followed film fans’ lead and returned to the theater on Tuesday (September 15, 2020) to attend a screening of Natalie Krinsky’s new movie The Broken Hearts Gallery.
The filmmaker, whose mind-bending thriller Tenet was released to theaters last month (August 2020), stunned staff at a multiplex in Irvine, California when he showed up to see the film with his wife.
The masked Brit posed for photos with employees at the venue, who have since posted shots online.
A representative for Regal Cinemas took to Twitter to share an image of Nolan and his wife, Emma Thomas, and wrote: “Thanks for stopping by Regal Irvine Spectrum Christopher Nolan #TENET.”
